    I have looked at loads of threads on this and some people say different things.
    I have a MK1 Leon cupra 180 and want to know what i will need to go stage 2?
    The mods i have
    Forge dump valve
    K&N cone air filter
    Cobra 2.5 exhaust
    Forge T.I.P

    On the shopping list
    Forge fmic and a sports cat

    some people say i need a 3" turbo back exhaust some don't
    just wondered if anyone could clear it up

    Thanks

    Aftermarket turbo intake pipe is a shout too, standard one collapses under pressure. I'd say exhaust is a must, I personally went for the full milltek de cat option in my stage 2+ prep

    For LC180, 2.5" is enough for catback. 3" Downpipe is needed (decat or sportscat) and indeed turbo intake pipe. Make sure the N75 valve is healthy, as is your fuel pump. 4 BAR FPR might be needed (ask your tuner).

    FMIC, TIP, exhaust are the most important things

    The cupra R one will be more difficult to fit as the boost pipes will be going the wrong way (LCR inlet manifold has the charge pipe on the opposite side) so the pipes forge would supply wouldn't fit straight on. But its an expensive way about it using forge stuff, the toyosport intercoolers are meant to be best for budget if that's what you're after.

    Dual pass works good as well, but gives more pressure drop. And youre able to keep the stock piping route.
